Time for Tea

My little afternoon tea stand is also on display currently, I've found a lovely dome to sit it in if you visit.


This piece is only about 6" so definitely worth a look 'for real'!

Calorie free chocolates!

My quilled chocolate card has found a frame for a home and is also on display in the Yeovil  Creatives exhibition.

I did quill the chocolates but (as I have done in the exhibition) always have to give credit to the amazing Diane Boden whose idea they were and point everyone in the direction of the book Miniature Quilling published by Search Press in which they appear.

Quilled Flower Sampler

This is one of my pieces currently in the Yeovil Creatives exhibition.

The flowers are from a Quilled Creations kit and show how many wonderful shapes and flowers you can make and how effective they are in the rainbow of colours.


It makes for quite a striking display.

Yeovil Creatives Exhibition

I'm back to try some updates.

Firstly about this super exhibition by Yeovil Creatives that opens on 23rd May - there is so much amazing work in it by some very talented people, please pop along and have a look and support us.


This blog was set up to showcase my crafting.  With my Stampin' Up! business taking over a little and some technical issues I've been quiet on here but hope to get back to updates relating to quilling and any other crafts that aren't fully Stampin' Up! (see JillStampsUp for this!).

I'm exhibiting some of my quilling in the Yeovil Creatives Exhibition and will add pictures on here at some point - although you can't beat seeing the detail in them for real.

Quilling Workshop

Thanks to The Old School Gallery in Yetminster for hosting todays Quilling Workshop.

We had a lovely time and were well fed and watered to keep us going.


Well done to Jan, Carla & Katie who did a super job - this is their work:








I've also managed to do a few bits as I demo-ed and while the ladies were busying away which I will report in on when I've finished!  If you haven't visited the Gallery I can thoroughly recommend not only the lovely atmosphere but the welcome and gorgeous food - the apple & caramel cake was delicious!

Contact me if you think you would like to come to a Christmas workshop!

A date for the diary

Another update on my rather neglected blog but a very exciting one!

I will be demonstrating quilled flowers at Yandles on 7th & 8th April and will have the very impressive display mentioned in the photos below:



The flowers aren't laid out on grids any more but some are mounted on cards and in pictures and whatever format they will all be there for you to admire and gain inspiration from!
